I’m a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) specializing in issues facing youth and young adults, suicide prevention, and career counselling.

In addition to my private counselling practice, I work as a clinical counsellor at a local university and occasionally teach counselling psychology courses as sessional instructor. I’ve previously worked as a youth suicide prevention therapist, career advisor, mental health worker, educational assistant, and crisis intervention worker – all of these experiences have shaped my perspective and practice as a counsellor today. I have a Master of Arts degree in Counselling Psychology from Adler University in Vancouver, BC and have had the privilege of providing counselling services to youth and adults facing many issues – have a look at the Counselling page for more information on issues I can help you to address in therapy.

Youth suicide prevention is one of the many issues I’ve become quite passionate about in my career to date, and I’ve been honoured to be considered a specialist in this area over the last several years. One of the things I love most about my field of work is that there are constant opportunities to learn and grow, so I’m always looking for new ideas and interventions to get excited about. A couple of my more recent interests incIude the use of therapeutic tabletop roleplaying games and mindful/therapeutic running.
